With roots in Punjab in Northern India, rumour has it that the famous Moti Mahal restaurant in Delhi designed this delicious curry. Also known as “butter chicken”, this dish is traditionally made by cooking the chicken in a hot oven (or tandoor) and then simmering it in the curry sauce which is then garnished with fenugreek leaves.

Too rich in cream for me as I prefer tomato based, but if you’re in to cream based curries it would be delicious I’m sure

Delicious and simple!

So I’ve been trying to eat less meat. If I had made this with meat I’d’ve actually used beef but I didn’t. I used Portobello and chestnut mushrooms and marinated and roasted as a he Recipe said. My god was this a tasty bowl of good. A total doddle to make (like all their recipes) and enough for leftovers tomorrow (recipes for two and I’m only one lol). What I’ve found is that these boxes are fantastic no matter what you “substitute” meat for veg. Great and would order this again.

Found it a little bland in flavour, had cooked a butter chicken from scratch myself the week before that was tastier and more flavoursome. However all the other Simply Cook meals we've had have been absolutely delicious.

Absolutely delicious, tasted like a restaurant dish.
